Major milestone reached to keep Wolverhampton Railway Station revamp on track
A ‘topping out’ ceremony was set to be held today to mark a major stage of work on Wolverhampton’s railway station.
The Wolverhampton Interchange project has hit a milestone with the completion of the roof in phase one of the new railway station.
Bosses say that it means the roof is now water tight.
The new station will be complete by 2020 and will connected to the Midland Metro through the extension from St George’s.
It is part of a £150 million plan to provide a new commercial gateway into the city centre by rail, bus or tram.
Contractors Galliford Try finished laying the foundations in February, following the demolition of the former British Transport Police building and a small section of the current station building next to Platform One.
The steel framework was then installed before floor slabs were laid and cladding went on the building ahead of the roof being put on.
